Canon or Nikon? Photoshop or Lightroom? When it comes to these subjects people are pretty strong one way or the other. I am a Canon/Lightroom girl through and through. I love shooting with my Canon 5D Mark II and Lightroom is the greatest editing tool ever invented...in my opinion :) I have even been to workshops where they show editing exclusively with photoshop and I just can't seem to get it. It seems so complicated to me. Everything they do in photoshop I just end up converting to Lightroom techniques and pretty much get the same results. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to be better at photoshop. There are so many amazing things you can do with that program and I do still use some of the tools that Lightroom does not offer. You can't switch heads in Lightroom...I use photoshop for that every time. At the end of the day though I am a 99% Lightroom girl and I guess I am just set in my ways...haha. Anywho, here are a few before and afters to show you my Lightroom editing. The first photo is straight out of my camera when I shot it and the second is of course my final edit and what I would give to a client. Enjoy! Happy Friday!!
